10 interesting things that you will most likely not aware of the flights
Airplanes have changed greatly since the days of the Wright Brothers, now they are many times more powerful, safer and certainly more popular. Today we present you a selection of 10 of the most interesting facts about avapereletah.
aircraft can withstand lightning strikes.
It sounds scary, but almost every passenger aircraft is subjected to a lightning strike on average once or twice a year for the flight. However, the modern airliners are designed so that even a strong lightning discharge does not cause substantial harm to them and allows you to safely continue the flight.
In the cabin there are no safe and dangerous places.
Studies have shown that the probability is very weak to survive a plane crash depends on where you sit: the front, back or in the middle of the cabin. When different types of accidents, the aircraft can be damaged in different ways, so it is impossible to guess at what point it is best to be in this moment. Fortunately, the plane crashes are very rare.
In most airplanes have a secret room for the rest of the crew.
Long-haul aircraft crew working 16 hours a day. That they can lie down and rest a little, aircraft have a hidden room. In addition to the small bed, there may still be a mini-suite. Of course, this room is only available for crew members.
During a night landing in the passenger compartment lighting is muted in case of emergencies.
If, during the landing accident occurs, the light is likely to go off, and then the passengers will not be able to adapt quickly from bright light to darkness, that will slow down the evacuation.
The aircraft can fly with one engine.
Any commercial airliner able to fly and land safely with only one engine is running. Moreover, there are cases where the plane was flying quite a long distance without any engine. For example, in 2001, due to the leakage of fuel from the aircraft Airbus A330, flying from Toronto Lisbon, both engines stopped and the pilot managed to fly 120 km to the nearest airport.
presence of ashtrays in the bathroom does not mean that there can be smoked.
While smoking on board aircraft has long been banned, still there are people who violate this rule. In this case, and there is an ashtray, is not it irresponsible smoker probably throw a cigarette butt in it, and not in the trash that could cause a fire.
The little mysterious hole in a window needs to normalize pressure.
Porthole plane consists of an outer and inner glass. While the outer layer is a durable glazing, intended to maintain the tightness, the inner layer is more fragile, it is intended only for the thermal and sound insulation cabin. Thus, in the case of a large difference in pressure between the cabin and the glass, the inner glass may break, unless this opening.
at the height of the food seems not so tasty.
Many notice that the food which is offered during aviaperelotov little fresh. The fact that at the height of the taste buds perceive the weaker the taste of salt, sugar, pepper, and other ingredients of dishes. At the same time, the tomato juice will seem more delicious, because it does not lose its properties.
In the case of cabin depressurization, oxygen masks will be able to provide you with air only 15 minutes.
It seems that it is very small, but do not be afraid. In fact, 15 minutes is enough to pilot the plane down to an altitude where you can breathe without oxygen masks.
White stripes in the sky from aircraft - it traces of condensation.
During operation of jet engines stands out moisture, which condenses at high altitudes and forms characteristic white marks in the sky.
